No the 24 was a perfect focal length for my landscapes. I seldom use the 17 end of my 17-40 either unless I am trying to exaggerate perpective, but then it is hard to achieve adequate focus through-out. The tilt does this MUCH better, meaning you can exaggerate perspective more by getting closer to the foreground without losing focal depth.

Shift is awesome for stitching panoramic landscapes, which mostly makes up for the smaller angle of view. When I say "stitch" the 2 shifted shots are simply dropped together in PS with a blurred edge and look perfect - no fancy software required. Huge time saver there. Less funky polariser effects too because the camera is not rotated with respect to the sun.

The only reason that I don't own the Mk2 already is that a house purchase has intervened :cool:
Just buy the Mk 2 and if it doesn't work out, send it my way...

Thanks guys. If I'm honest the main reason for buying is that I do sporadic work on architecture for some big firms and I think it would help. I'm also trying to have a solid portfolio of architecture work in my back pocket if I ever need it for a career move.

I actually think the ability to shoot scenes, urban landscapes and even some basic person-in-the-scene portraits, but perfectly squared off and with zero leading lines is my main driver. It's something I've longed for in my photos for a while, which in my mind makes it a genuine thing as opposed to a flash in the pan. I did the same thing with buying my 35L and it paid off...

Fingers crossed. Trying to live of fumes before I go to make sure I can afford it. ;)


Cheers, Dave.

No experience with the Canon 24TS but I did have a Samyang 24mm TS for a few weeks. It wasn't as sharp as the Canon 45TS I have now and lack of focus confirm made it a bit hard to use. I didn't use it for much landscape work though. Might be worth checking out as it is less than half price of the Canon 24TS Mk2.

The samyang is optically similar to the mk1 canon but a super rotating design .

It will do your shifting but at max shift be prepared for average IQ

if I hadn't had the young 'un to look after today, I'd have been out taking photographs - having said that if I hadn't been at home looking after him, I'd have been at work...

Well, I wasn't working today but still didn't take any photos.
I did however, give the lawnmower a bit of a birthday, pulled out some weeds, emptied the garden shed a bit. Other than that, not much happening.

Spent an evening up in Boomrock and had a go at getting some stars in one of the photos.

Just a simple long exposure shot, camera's self timer and asked the couple to try and stay absolutely still.
